Living Joyful Courage MEMBERSHIP
Community and Coaching for moms raising adolescents

You know how I am so passionate about supporting parents in our journey through the teens years…  You have seen me really niche down and offer resources and coaching for this super special parenting season.

And YOU know that I believe that community is EVERYTHING, right?

Well, I am creating the MOST amazing community space for moms navigating the tween and teen years -- the Living Joyful Courage Membership.

The terrain gets ROUGH when we move into the adolescent years with our kids…  Even the most committed “positive parenting” mom may be finding herself out of her depth when the challenges start to show up. 

It’s messy.

And moms need a place and a community that can be the soft landing for her to roll around in the messiness. A place that celebrates the challenges as opportunities for personal growth and discovery. A place that puts relationship first - relationship with self, with our kids, with the world around us.

I am really just teasing you with this right now. Doors will open for this magical space mid April…  If you are interested in being on the wait list to find out more go to www.joyfulcourage.com/ljc.

Joyful courage to me means being able to experience every single day me, authentically, doing exactly what brings me joy, whether I have courage or not I’m going to step into it because on the other side there is joy.

My guests today are Ted Bunch and Anna Marie Johnson Teague. 

 

Ted and Anna Marie are friends, parents, and anti-violence educators. They work for A Call to Men, helping men and boys promote healthy manhood and prevent violence and discrimination. 

 

Ted works with professional athletes, business leaders, activists, and boys just like the ones you have. 

 

Anna Marie is a storyteller at heart and a devoted boy mom. She is nationally recognized for creating and executing award-winning, multi-platform campaigns to advance critical social issues like improving education and ending violence against women.

 

Takeaways from the show:

  • Prevention of violence and discrimination against women and girls
  • How the book of dares are changing people’s lives
  • Making an effort to talk about emotions with your boys
  • Socialization of masculinity
  • Being vulnerable is a strength
  • How to support the men and boys in your life
  • Messages men are getting from society
  • Peer influence in middle school
  • Developing a critical lens on how women are treated
  • What healthy manhood looks like
  • The danger women/people are in because of the ways we are raising our boys
  • Treat your kids like an adult
  • Having conversations with your boys that aren’t always in your face
  • Raise boys to value girl’s experiences just as much as they value their own

Where to find Ted and Anna Marie:

 

The Book of Dares | Website | FaceBook | Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn

 

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Anna Marie: In the context of this conversation, it’s authenticity for two reasons. I think it requires joyful courage to be your authentic self but I also think authenticity will foster joyful courage in your life.

 

Ted: I’m inspired by the joyful courage that I see in our youth. I think about my children and I think about my son who came out as gay when he was 15, he’s now 18, and the courage it took for that and the joy he’s experiencing in embracing his full self. 

Also when I see Anna Marie’s son Jack wanting to be the best son and man he can be and understanding all that he is in being a white male at 12 years old with certain privilege. Just as my children, while 4 of the 6 are black, have privilege as well. There's a race privilege, there’s a class privilege and there’s a gender privilege. The next generation is really giving me joyful courage.



See you next week!! :)
